Looks like I know what I'll be getting myself for xmas this year. Great write up, thank you. Ray Charles and Milt Jackson is quite the duo.

Thanks - and you will not be disappointed. I spent the better part of the last 4 years collecting/completing Blue Note 1500 and 4000 series. Out of those 535 titles, this is every bit as good as any of them. Im just now going through the Impulse and Atlantic stuff from the same period(52-66 primarily). Incredible stuff there too. I am easily as OCD about Jazz as I am about GD. It truly never ends.

I did some searching at my libraries and put a hold on:
"Pure genius [sound recording] : the complete Atlantic recordings (1952-1959) / Ray Charles"

It has the entire two disc set on it. I'm number 8 on the hold list so it may be a month or two before I get to listen to it. Sounds like it's worth the wait.

Happy Holidays to you and your family.
